Akiva: Since when has the accomplishment of none of one's publically pronounced goals become in your very own words, "an important achievement?" We have shed precious IDF blood due to the emotional miscalculations of Omert. With the end result being that after a month of horror and struggle for the young men and women involved; the status quo remains basically the same as it was four weeks ago - our soldiers are still being held captive, and Hezbollah still reigns supreme in Lebanon with a very much alive insane man at it's head.
